* In AMOL, [[spoiler:keeping Alanna alive long enough that she can wake up, and thus release Rand from her bond before her death can send him into Warder rage]].
* She gets one way back near the start of the first book by proving to Lan just how good of a tracker she is by managing to follow what he believed to be a completely undetectable trail.

* She gets one way back near the start of the first book by proving to Lan just how good of a tracker she is by managing to follow what he believed to be a completely undetectable trail. On a re-read, it's easy to realize that's when they began to become attracted to each other.

* Nynaeve's entire character concept is pretty BadAss to begin with. She's a specialist in Healing who can't channel unless she's enraged. In other words, she's a Berserker Healer. But her CrowningMomentOfAwesome came when she faced down a Forsaken--in her mind, at this point, an undefeatable evil god--and realized that the two of them were ''equal in power''. Nynaeve fights her to a standstill in a magical duel, and then wins by grabbing a nearby piece of LostTechnology and decking her.

** Her return in AMOL, and how she manages to [[ReasonYouSuckSpeech completely shame]] all the rulers in attendance at Merrilor, prevent a war, [[spoiler:convince Rand to back down on leading the armies and breaking the seals, and convince Egwene to break them instead]]. BadAss cred restored.

*** Ituralde is just plain BadAss. He beat a Draghkar, a soul-sucking Shadowspawn that hypnotizes their prey with their hum, by [[ScreamingWarrior charging at it while screaming at the top of his lungs]] so he couldn't hear it. And once he killed it, he just charged at the next one.

Added DiffLines:

* Geofram Bornhald's death at the end of ''The Great Hunt.'' He launches a clearly futile attack against the Seanchan army (including combat channelers and honest to God dinosaurs) occupying Falme on ''foot'' knowing he and his men will certainly die, purely because it's the right thing to do, and basically "Fuck it, someone needs to." The Children of the Light are some of the best soldiers in the universe, but are also the most fantastically dogmatic and racist; their uniforms immediately conjure either Crusaders or the KKK, depending on one's historical frame of reference. Despite this, they're also the first major faction to do battle with what at the time appears to be the series' Big Bad faction and despite being heavily outnumbered, stage a genuinely heroic last stand, buying enough time for Mat to sound the Horn and turn the tide.

* Moiraine, despite being TheObiWan and probably one of the weakest channelers in the main cast, has second-highest kill count on Forsaken. Only Rand the Hero of Destiny has more. She beat one by pegging him with a DangerousForbiddenTechnique while he was in the middle of an epic swordfight with Rand, and the other, she TACKLED THROUGH A DIMENSIONAL PORTAL. That's right, Moiraine defeated one of the most powerful female channelers to ever live with ''her bare hands''. Moiraine is, for the record, also a VERY small woman.

* Lews Therin finally getting to use the Power again in ''Knife of Dreams'', decimating a massive horde of Trollocs with ranged fire attacks and gates that continually open and close moving around the battlefield.

* Rodel Ituralde resists Compulsion, the highest form of mind control, with sheer willpower, refusing to give the order that will break the back of the defensive forces holding Tha'kandar. Elyas knocked him down, but until then Ituralde ''did not give in''.

* Padan Fain proves to the shadow that he's not a mere darkfriend any more. How? By NAILING A MYRDRAAL (To most humans the manifestation of fear) TO A BARN DOOR. While it was alive (the myrdraal, that is, not the door).

*** And doesn't ''doesn't even realize it'', utterly shocking Egwene. This is like if someone from our world casually caught a ''nuke''. Perrin Aybara: Telarian'rhod Badass.
